Create an itinerary including Carnac stones
Visit Carnac stones (Alignments de Carnac) to view the largest group of megaliths of this variety in the world. Guided tours in English will tell you about the stones erected here during the Neolithic period, probably around 3,300 BCE, but some may date back to 4,500 BCE. Eleven converging rows of menhirs (standing stones) stretch for 116,500 sq m (271,000 sq ft). Make Carnac stones a centerpiece of your Carnac vacation itinerary, and find what else is worth visiting using our Carnac online trip planner.

  • This was my main reason for visiting Brittany. I've wanted to come here for a number of years and was not disappointed. Only saw a small part of the whole site but it was stunning. My only real disappointment was that the car park had filled up really early but just found a lay-by further down instead. It's worth going to see but get there early.
  • Can't walk amongst the stones till October so limited to walking a busy main road around the site
